Dave Houston started this petition to Representative Bennie G. Thompson and

Citizens of Coahoma County/Clarksdale, Mississippi lets start this New Year off with action and progress that we all need and results that we all will see! In 2020, We’ve lost family members and friends to Covid-19 and it troubled us all! We stood strong! What’s left to be said was the unnecessary hurts that came and things that we can change if we lift up our voices together to be heard! Today, I, Dave Houston Jr. of Coahoma County is filing this petition for a traffic light, yield light, or stop light to be placed at the Intersection on Highway 61 located at Shady Nook! Years and years have passed and we’ve seen and heard about the accidents and deaths that occur at this intersection on a regular basis, but still no one has come forth to ask for change! Could you look at the accident reports at this intersection? Could you look at the fatalities that has occurred here? Could you at least ride to see for yourselves the speed at which the buses and 18 wheelers travel with that being an turn and a Intersection? I have looked and at the rate of speed a bus or 18 wheeler push coming through this stretch of Highway it makes it far greater for death to be evident if some type of precaution isn’t placed at the turn to the store itself or at the intersection along the highway! Also, May I add from the Clarksdale Bypass all the way to the Jonestown Junction Highway 61 is very dark! Lighting is very scarce in this section with homes along the highway and businesses! It’s hard for the drivers to see Pedestrians with no crosswalks or areas to cross if need be! In the last month, I’ve personally experienced that my Uncle was hit by a car on Highway 61North and last week another man was hit and lost his life while dealing with car trouble! Not to mention, The terrible accident that took away one of my clients and an Admired Young Man and Family from the City of Jonestown, Mississippi! I hope this does not fall on deaf ears and I’m willing to stand firm to fight to save lives at this Intersection for the Citizens of Coahoma County! Thank You!

Dave Houston Jr.
